Here is their writeup about the launch:

OPENING RECEPTION: Thursday, August 7th, 2008 - 6 to 8pm

Magic Pony Gallery - 694 Queen Street West

Magic Pony welcomes acclaimed Canadian artist Nicholas Di Genova for an exclusive exhibition and book signing on August 7 from 6-8pm. This special event celebrates the North American release of 'DY005: Nicholas Di Genova' and marks the first solo exhibition of Di Genova's limited edtion prints at Magic Pony. Di Genova has also created a limited print Gocco unique to Magic Pony to be included with the first fifty copies of 'DY005'.

'DY005: Nicholas Di Genova' is the fifth book in the Die Young series; a collection of books documenting emerging international artists, illustrators and designers, published by Spanish magazine Belio. 'DY005' charts the last three years of Di Genova's impressive taxonomy of biomorphic, hybridized creatures. With a highly-skilled, intricate technique, Di Genova works with ink and animation paints on mylar to render a fantastically magnificent menagerie. A compilation of remarkable sketches, paintings and sculptures, 'DY005: Nicholas Di Genova' is the Audubon guide for the post-apocalyptic terrain.

Nicholas, I am a retired art teacher and I am currently realizing my dream of having time for art. I have added your site and blog to my blog and appreciate your great talent and imagination. One of our great Canadian Artists!
